EVA Laminated Glass

We have been EVA laminating since 2011.  In 2011 we installed and setup our RCN EVA kiln that would enable us to continue manufacturing things such as floors, barriers and decorative items with a  modern up-to-date process.  Our laminating kiln is based on a 3000 x 2000mm bed size which is ideally matched on size to our stock materials and other machining processes.  We are able to assemble laminations ranging from 6.8mm to 50mm in thickness.

Ethylene Vinyl Acetate  (EVA) laminating is a process by which two or more glasses are bonded together under vacuum and heat with EVA being the separatory bonding material.  Laminating enables the properties of two or more glass items to be combined into a composite material.  These composites can have increased strength and/or safety properties over monolithic glasses making them suitable for floors and barriers.  We have passed EN14449 certifiction for laminating and maintain regular testing as part of our production control systems.  EVA can also be used to encapsulate decorative foils and interlayers in the creation of decorative glass composites.  These composites can then be installed as finished items or then be further processed to achieve the job specification.

EVA Laminated Glass

Applications

  • Toughened Laminates for Balustrade and Floors
  • Thick non-stock laminates
  • Decorative laminations such as Cracked Ice

Guidance

  • To show that our laminated glass meets EN 14449-1, the European standard for laminated glass, we laser mark it.
  • EVA laminates have superior weathering properties making them more suited to external applications.  They are not hydroscopic and therefore do not whiten like PVB laminates.  They are also a thermoset lamination and therefore are less susceptible to bending in extreme temperatures.  This also also due to the higher surface bond EVA achieves to glass than that of PVB.
  • Careful consideration should be given to any sealants used that will come into contact with the EVA.  Aggressive sealants can cause yellowing or discolouration to EVA.  Our advice is to check with the sealant manufacturer compatibility and to use sealants that are of very good low modulus and neutral curing.
